1) didn't the thread titles used to be orange in the old version? i liked it better that way
2) Can we have our names be our rank color again?
3) i mentioned this in another thread, but trying to quote is confusing. There no longer is a button that says "quote" Instead there are two reply buttons. I think i understand the logic behind it, but i still find it confusing.
4) what happened to the badges? I had a nice collection and now they're all gone.
5) The little icon next to our names our no longer color coded by gender. Now how am i gonna know who to hit on ;P
6) I know this was on the last version too, but i never really understood what was with the little boxes with check marks under our names.

1, 2, 4, and 5 were the same last time the forum went through a major update. It'll take the admins a bit to get those back to normal.

For three, you click the multiquote button on all the posts you want, then reply to quote them all so you can address multiple people in one post. The old system had something similar to that, only I believe it was just a + sign and didn't say "multiquote"

not sure about the checkboxes. As far as I know, mods and admins can use them to select multiple posts to alter with their super duper abilities. Like, I could check a few posts and then click "merge" or "delete"

Not sure what normal users can do with them.

Edit: I'm mistaking your checkboxes for a different set of checkboxes :V

1. I like blue but whichever is fine
2. This was a mod we will have to find again
3. I think it's the exact same with different text.
4. Another mod.
5.
6. This is the IPB Rank system, which we don't really use. More posts = more checks

I suppose I could change it back.
2) Can we have our names be our rank color again?
I'll try to find a plug-in for it. Forgot about that last night.
3) i mentioned this in another thread, but trying to quote is confusing. There no longer is a button that says "quote" Instead there are two reply buttons. I think i understand the logic behind it, but i still find it confusing.
Nooot really sure how it's confusing...
4) what happened to the badges? I had a nice collection and now they're all gone.
Again, I'll look for a new plug-in.
5) The little icon next to our names our no longer color coded by gender. Now how am i gonna know who to hit on ;P
...
6) I know this was on the last version too, but i never really understood what was with the little boxes with check marks under our names.

I changed my profile image thing, but it doesn't seem to be applying the change to my profile. Just the options page of my profile where it shows what I'm "using"

There may be a delay or it could be a cache problem for you, but I'm seeing some girl saying "Not me".

The name formatting will have to wait a while. I was expecting it to be purely hook-based (small plug-ins), but it turns out there's still a large amount of editting required. The IPB3.1 version has half as much editting, so I'm kinda tempted to wait... We'll see.

As for the badge system, having trouble finidng a version for IPB3. If anyone wants to help, try searching for a badge/rewards/awards/etc. mod/extension/hook for Invision Power Board 3.0.x. Whoever finds one that will work will get a special badge.

Wow, i just found out what happens when you get a PM. That is kinda annoying. I don't like that it blocks most of the screen. I liked the older version better where there was just a little read note in the corner.

Then disable it.
